Everybody wants to talk about running trains - be they passenger or freight.
Track and its facilities need maintained - that takes track time for MofW and Signals and everything else that is required to keep the property in shape to run its business.
That's just par for the course -- it all has to be maintained, or else it gets mentioned.
Besides, we don't talk about running freight in the First Street Tunnel. CSX runs freight separate via the Alexandria Extension, which continues east from L'Efaunt Plaza and across the Anacostia River, before circling around DC (connecting to the NEC in Chevelrly and CSX's Capital Subdivision in Hyattsville, where it can snake through to F Tower and QN Tower to go west).
